“Really amazing value”

Written on: 13/11/2013 by Sophiechick (1 review written)

I am so impressed with the range of products they stock at such amazing value. So far I've ordered leather boots and a coat, both of which arrived on time. I ordered two different sizes for the boots so I returned one and was refunded imediately. It's very hard to resist not spending much more on this site!… Read Full Review

“Really impressed with the gear and the site”

Written on: 13/11/2013 by LS78 (1 review written)

I've bought a number of things from Brand Alley over the years from Xmas presents for family to things for myself including ski gear, cushions, handbags, children's t-shirts, evening dresses for me. Recently I saw the cycling Dare 2B sale and I have been meaning to get some new gear so it was perfect timing! I bought some fab tops, not only did they fit perfectly, I LOVED the colours too. I also bought a pair of padded cycling shorts which, my own fault, I should have check the sizing on the… Read Full Review

This reviews are made up from the company. I work myself in the internet business and see similar things every day. They only put this up to get better reviews!

Ls78's reply to Hurlupe's Comment

Written on: 14/11/2013

That is not true Hurlupe. I use Brand Alley whenever there are some good deals on that suit me and I do not work for them, actually work for an Accountancy firm. Its just I noticed a lot of bad press and I have never experienced a bad purchase from them and its all too easy to give negative feedback so I thought for once it would be a good thing to give positive feedback and here it is.

Love my gear, actually used the Dare 2B stuff cycling in to work this morning on what was yet again, a lovely sunny day in London! I love putting it on, makes me feel like a proper cyclist!! More of these mornings please Man from above!

“Totally rubbish service”

Written on: 13/11/2013

I placed an order on October 10th. My money was immediately taken. I have emailed and tried (without any luck) to phone. This company used to be excellent but i suspect that they are in deep financial trouble and not being honest with their customers. I am going to try and get money back but i am not hopeful. For goodness sake do NOT place an order with them… Read Full Review

“Are they still in business”

Written on: 13/11/2013

Agree with previous reviews that this business is now completely unreliable. Still waiting for an old order, for which I have paid and wouldn't buy anything else now. Tried to access the site this morning to see if there was any order update but can't even access the site now. Anyone know if this business has closed down ? Fortunately I paid for my order by credit card so should be able to recover my money from cc company at least… Read Full Review

“worst ever shopping experience”

Written on: 12/11/2013

I ordered a pair of Oliver Sweeney shoes, the money was taken from account within minutess of placing order, it has never turned up, e-mails get you an automated response with nothing to do with questions, phone number on e-mails wrong it gives you another which takes at least an hour to get through. Customer services then tell you bare faced lies saying they have not taken money which they have. No decent firm takes cash for weeks months in advance they take on dispatch of goods, still no sign… Read Full Review

“Good value cycling gear ”

Written on: 12/11/2013 by b4rk13 (1 review written)

I recently bought a set of cycling gear from BrandAlley in their Dare 2B sale. I got 6 cycling tops for under £70 which I was pretty pleased with! I hadn't really realised their business model, since it was my first purchase from them, so was a bit confused about the 21 day delivery time. However, after reading their About page, it seems clear to me how they achieve and pass on the savings to customers - which I don't think many people understand. Anyway, overall, I think it's a great site for… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/11/2013

The site was going downhill but I think they've overcome the problems as my order arrived on time, and the item I had to return was refunded next day. Hopefully they're back to their old selves again as I really like the company… Read Full Review

“What has happened to Brand Alley?”

Written on: 12/11/2013

Dear oh Dear! what has happened to Brand Alley? I have purchased loads of things from this site over the last two years and with only the minor problems you would expect, but since the new website has been launched trying to buy anything is a complete nightmare. The pages take ages to load you can only view a few items at a time, then you have to reload the page with a few more. There is nothing on the order to say when the expected delivery is, like there use to be. I have been waiting for an… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2013

My experience exactly. Still trying to find out where my last order has gone; the daily offers arrive as if nothing is wrong, the website blog has been updated as if their world is hunky dory but something(s) clearly is very wrong indeed.

The old website worked and worked well. Now the sort function doesn't, navigation between pages is laborious, especially if one clicks on a particular item.

All fur coat and no knickers.

“disaster of an e-shop”

Written on: 11/11/2013 by DariaK_82 (1 review written)

I used to be a loyal customer at BrandAlley, however some 3 months ago they started being sloppy and their website and Customer Service stopped working. Since September and IF you eventually hear anything back from BAlley, everything is blamed on the new website that supposedly turned their systems upside down (bravo for their UXteam and developers!). Customer Service does not reply to messages and is beyond any way of communication. Phoning does not help - called 3 times and have the… Read Full Review

Since the website relaunch nothing works. I am waiting for my refunds (300 Pounds!!) - no replay to my emails. I am waiting for old order - longer than 6 weeks! No replay to my emails. They do not have a phone number - but the CEO writes a stupid statement... Do not buy, you will wait for your money!… Read Full Review

“Really frustrating!”

Written on: 07/11/2013 by scade123 (1 review written)

Placed my first ever order after a friend told me about the site, a dress for an event coming up very soon.... 14 - 21 days delivery now overdue and I'm getting worried. They took the money out of my account when I ordered and still no sign of the dress and I can't really afford to buy an alternative dress until I get the money back! Like everyone else I've just received standard email responses. Just how long does it take to sort out website bugs. I've never known anything like this. Avoid… Read Full Review

“Do not go there whilst they're in this state!!”

Written on: 06/11/2013 by cjmarden (1 review written)

I've used them before without problems but now its completely different and they're in completer disarray following an IT change or at least that's what I was told was the problem. I've had an incomplete order since August and all I've had back to my e-mail queries are the usual 'sorry' platitudes and promises that it will be completed within the next week and still no sign. And don't bother trying to ring customer services unless you've got plenty of time on your hands. You'll ring the… Read Full Review
